      Guy was 3-betting his BB 50% which i'm sure is a leak. I like my hand IP vs this guy so decide to call.

      He cbets so small so I call IP to reevalute
      when he checks I think i have the best hand but bet to protect.

      Fine to call 3-bets in this spot with reads?

      Position:

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Well, the problem is that there are only few hands which you are making to fold on turn which are better. They are like AQ/AK. :P But obviously it's better to take a stab there than let him win with those hands.

      Sometimes it's still the case that I even Check behind and take a free showdown since my Ace will be very often ahead and at the same time we wont make him better hands to fold. Maybe sometimes even not a Ace high.

      Best Regards.
